    I hope someone is having some springy weather...we have had about 1-1/2 days of it here...has been a cold, rainy, snowy, cloudy, windy season...so tired of it and keep hoping that soon we will get some warmer days. It probably will feel like it goes from winter to summer here with no real spring. Today it is in 40's with 20mph winds and gusts higher than that. I was hoping to work outside for awhile, but may wait until next weekend.
    Guess I will have to stay in and quilt...once I get off the computer.

    Well the sun is shining at the moment and it's a balmy 57 here. I'm so tired of rain, wind and snow. Someone must have pissed off Mother Nature cuz she sure is making thing miserable for alot of folks. Well I'd better run outside and soak up the sun before it goes away again. LOL.

    We have had a couple of days - not a string of days. I'll take any spring day. My favorite time of year.

    It was in the 80s yesterday, Today it is is in the low 50s and raining and very damp and cold feeling. I am ready for spring to stay around for a while. We get a day of warm weather then several days of very cool temps.

    It was...for about 2 hours today. LOL From about 1-3 it was sunny and felt warm...looked like spring...not even windy. Now it is cloudy, getting windier, looks like it could rain again anytime. We are so very tired of this weather pattern. :(

    Springy? It's eternal summer in southern California, usually around 70-72 degrees all year - but today it's up around 90! I don't mind, though, since the humidity is very low right now.

    In the 80s today, beautiful and clear (because of winds). I appreciate the winds, they clearn the air and our view from the mountian side where we side is fantastic, but the down side is how dry it makes my skin and messes my hair. LOL LOL

    It is the second of May and the temperature right now is +33 degrees. It is totally cruddy outside, no sunshine, just grey - can't even see clouds. So much for global warming! Grass is green and growing, but perennials are nowhere, can't put in seeds which I generally do around the first of May. Honestly, it is dank, damp, windy, just down and out miserable. It does not depress me, because God plans the day for us, so I make lemonade out of lemons. But I wish the sun would come out. This Minnesota white is so anemic looking and everyone knows where I am from!!!!!!! But like the song goes "The sun will come out tomorrow, bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow there'll be sun"
    and I am holding Annie to that one!!!!!

    Make your own sunshine! Edie

    This is the best spring I can remember since I moved to Georgia in 76. Everything is blooming and my tomatoe plants already have tomatoes on them the sixe of a tennis ball. Sorry I can't send you all some sunshine.It has been hot but not humid as usual.

    But if you already had nice, warm weather just think how hot and miserable your summer would be. You're pretty far north to be expecting June weather in late April or early May.
